Of course, there is a cup of good coffee to drink. In addition, it is important to divide the area, and also create different atmosphere for different areas.
For example, a coffee shop in Silicon Valley has a very good area division: upstairs are all entrepreneurs, they always stay there for one day, no noise. Occasionally, it has the voice of discussing issue, and it’s quiet, but not has too much decoration, and there are many windows, high roof, simple and bright. There is no sofa, but have the basic wooden chair, the desktop is relatively large, so for the spatial arrangements, it allows the guests joint or disassembly the desktop according to the number of members.
Downstairs leaves to people who take a short stay, they can read newspapers, chat, wait for friends, or enjoy coffee time, only provide healthy food. And also, you will found that this place has warm decoration, cultural atmosphere, a small sofa, plus wall paintings, table lamps, newspapers, own brand promotion, introduction of nearby activities and so on. Sometimes there have band show, and the walls will change different handicrafts or oil paintings at a non-regular time.
In addition, the clerk won’t disturb the guests, and they need to take care of themselves. They can refill ordinary coffee, pour water, take napkins, add sugar and so on by themselves. (I was worried that someone who from outside would think it’s free to take, later I found this small self-service area next to the counter which has a clerk here, may be it could be a good idea). When customer leaves cafe, they will put the coffee cup in the big box which near the exit corner.
coffee valve deems that this cafe feels like our home. Except to buy coffee need to deal with others, other things are very independent. Fast WIFI, rechargeable, the washroom was clean, and has toilet paper, hand sanitizer, tissue, and mirror. And another important point that there is a quiet place for you to take or receive private telephone call, this point is sweet for customers.
One way valve believes that drinking coffee should be like tasting wine, first smell the aroma, and then try a small bite, that you can taste the essence of it.
